American Idol Wraps Up Week 2 Of 2011 Auditions

Another week, another batch of American Idol golden ticket holders heading to Hollywood. With 53 golden tickets in Milwaukee and too many given out in Nashville the new judges will next head to Austin for the final week of auditions.

For a full run down of the good, the bad, and the ugly be sure to check out Reality Rewind’s recap of the Nashville auditions and what happened in Milwaukee.

Most seasons the audition rounds seem to endlessly loop while we wait for the real action, but this year has been a little better so far. Interestingly, and maybe it’s just me (probably is), but it’s felt like the 2-hour Wednesday shows have been a little more positive with better singers and more interesting stories while Thursday shows have featured more of the “they can’t be serious” auditioners.

Who stood out for you this week? Milwaukee’s discussions have heavily featured Chris Medina and his heart breaker story (not all reactions were supportive) while Nashville closed with its ringer, Lauren Alaina, the young singer Nigel Lythgoe has been anxious for us to see. You can watch both their performances below.
